Happy Birthday Debbie

A few cards I made for my sister's Birthday last Tuesday. can't see the first one too clearly, but it's a picture of her and her son Jemal when he was really young. I love the one of him alone, it was at a stage in his life when he had to wear glasses. Too cute. ( He hates it though) lol
I made the envelope for this one also.

UFO'S is right. I started these a few months ago, and as you see they are still not finished. I did have them done in my head, but now for the life of me I can't seem to get that image back. I have so many things unfinished my head is spinning. LOL
I started a pair of shoes way back in May or June, when Sue, Dianne, Sandy and I were doing our challenges, that still need to be completed, about 8 cards on the go, loads of embelishments to afix to cards not even made yet.Well enough of the whining for now.

The problem with these two cards:
The Lights didn't turn out the way I had wanted them to so I just left them for another day.
The fan is a bit too bulky so I got discouraged with that.

Boy I can't seem to get into the mood.
I think I am on overload with all the things I want to do, all the things I've started and not finished, the weather sucks, and ............. well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hope your all haveing a better time of it.
Happy crafting

Yesterday's Fun

Yesterday I was thinking of finishing up all the things I had on the go, but I had spent the better part of Fri., and Sat. cleaning and getting things outside the house done. My leg was throbbing like a tooth ache, my migrane was acting up a bit, the weather is very cold, and I just decided to do nothing in the end.
Feeling a bit restless and a tiny bit guilty for doing absolutely nothing, later in the day I did do these fun cards.
Last year after Christmas they were selling these bags of cute cards with penguin's, Moose, and snowmen on them andI thought the idea was great.
So here is my version of a few of them.

The second one I stitched, embossed, chalked, punched and added cut outs.  Posted by Picasa

These are just a few of the goodies I got for the money a sent with Dianne to England. I can't put them all on, no time, got to try everything out. LOL Already did a sample of all the stamps, now on to something else.
Just beautiful colored papers, meshes, threads, some Lazartran(finally). I could go on and on.

Returned home broken

Well here is a pic of Dianne's poor broken foot. All swollen, bruised, and sore.
Not a very happy ending to a great trip. But it being so close to X-mas, and her BIRTHDAY I guess us little elf's will just have to take care of her till she recovers.
Just happy to have you home Dianne.
